With ‘You’re Christmas To Me’, Sam Ryder challenges Wham! for #1

by Patria

Sam Ryder is in pole position to beat Wham! to the number 1 spot for the week. You’re Christmas To Me is currently less than 800 chart units away from knocking Last Christmas off the top spot on the charts.

As it stands, Sam’s Amazon Music Original is expected to climb to number 2, which would make it his second single to peak there, alongside the Eurovision 2022 anthem SPACE MAN.

But it’s not a done deal yet. The Pogues ft. Kirsty MacColl’s Fairytale of New York is not far behind after the funeral of the late Shane MacGowan last week. The classic seems to be rising from last week (3), while Mariah Carey’s All I Want For Christmas Is You is still reliably in play for a coup (4).

Another Amazon Music Original to keep an eye on is Jorja Smith’s cover of Stay Another Day, which looks to be the big riser of the week; up 18 mid-week to No. 8. It would be the critically acclaimed singer-songwriter’s second UK Top 10 single and first in four years.\

As the race for the Official Christmas Number 1 single of 2023 approaches, we also see a couple of festive favorites rising midweek; Ed Sheeran and Elton John’s Merry Christmas (7), and Elton John once again with solo single Step Into Christmas (9).

Stay tuned for all the latest contenders for the 2023 UK #XmasNo1 – and expect more developments as the week progresses.
